Four of the victims were killed in the accident, Ashley Moten, Joycelyn Alexander, Greg Mosley and Kedric Footman. Joycelyn’s younger sister, Jessica Alexander died Thursday at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
The son of Greg Mosley, Phillip, is also in Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and is stable.
Rachel Harrell, Teddy Jones and Anastasia Footman were treated and released Thursday from Memorial Hospital in Bainbridge.
Jessica Alexander and Rachel Harrell are both Bainbridge High School seniors.
Ashley Moten was the chef manager at Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on Shotwell Street, and she was a former student at Bainbridge College who had taken classes this past summer.
“She worked hard and did everything she could to take care of her daughter,” said Kentucky Fried Chicken Manager Janice Screen.
Moten started working at KFC in 2005, and in fact had finished her shift at the restaurant on Wednesday evening.
“She was nice and loving,” Screen said.
Joycelyn Alexander was a member of the inaugural class of Bainbridge College’s cosmetology program, and had been with the program for the last nine months, said Connie Synder, BC interim dean of student services, and director of admissions and registration.
Synder said Alexander would call almost every day trying to see if she was accepted into the new program, as admission into the program was relatively competitive due to it being the inaugural class.
“She been in the program for the last nine months, so that group of students is going to be mourning greatly,” Synder said. “She was just an outgoing student. She was just so excited to get into that cosmetology program. She was just an outspoken young lady, full of life. Very creative.”
Greg Mosley was a graduate of Bainbridge College who majored in the technical studies course work of electronics. He was a minister at a church near Attapulgus, where his mother lived.
“He was a good student; a good person,” Snyder said. “He was very outgoing.”
Harrell, Jones, Anastasia Footman, Phillip Mosley and Jessica Alexander were all former Technical Studies students at Bainbridge College. Kedric Footman was the only accident victim with no connection to BC. He was a resident of Bainbridge, however.
